I harvested Zinfandel yesterday morning from the Montecillo vineyard (Moon Mountain District, overlooking Sonoma Valley). Fruit had significant shatter, like most vineyards this year, so the yield is low. Some dehydration on the smaller bunches, but not too bad overall. Juice tasted really, really good.

I've been playing around making 3D models of vineyards.

Anyone interested in a quick game of guess the region?

Not sure if this qualifies? It is a painting, not an of actual vineyard but a vineyard in the artist's mind. She gave it to me last week as a birthday present.

If I remember correctly that is all Alicante Bouschet out there along the highway. The Zin and other varieties are in the blocks behind the first row of trees.

Westside Rd in Hbg. Some friends of mine were building a house on their vineyard property but had to raze the existing dwelling. They donated it to the Fire Dept and then it was used in a Training Burn. House razed and a big tax deduction in the meantime!
